To be fair he's only saying that he's never seen a movie released before 1970 that he thinks is good. Might have been genuinely unlucky and just seen schlock or something that's too far from entry level to feel comfortable for him. Dumb, but can be mended.

I think Arabic or Arabic-looking actors should get more representation as good guys and leading roles and quit with this mentality of "every arab is a muslim terrorist". Not every arab is even a fucking muslim for christ's sake.

In today's world, Arab is "The Enemy" therefore they're always playing negative roles or very minor neutral non-aggressive ones at best.

I find Arthouse to be boring and/or overly pretentious half of the time, even knowing and appreciating historical context and the film methods they pioneered.
I have a genuine dislike for such "epochs" of cinema as 8½, L'Eclisse, Au Hasard Balthazar, Ladri di biciclette, Apur Sansar, Tokyo Story, In the Mood for Love, À bout de souffle, The Mirror and Vertigo, and don't think films in general should be put on pedestals, or any work of art for that matter.

I am starting to come around to this.

Sci Fi can be good or bad. Aside from one or two of the original movies being alright they are all laughably predictable.

The Force Awakens surpassed my expectations and was a good Star Wars movie on par with Return of the Jedi.

The racism and misogyny on 4chan in general has me worried.
It's always been a part of the site, but back in the day it was way more ironic, more there because the freedom of anonymity gave you free license to act stupid and get something out of your system you couldn't in your day to day life. Then /pol/ attracted stormfags and they've been an element here ever since, recruiting kids to their insanity trough dank memes.

"new" concept that wasn't expanded on and ended up used as space magic

Diversity is important and worth consideration when making films or television shows. Most people who deny this are white middle-class heterosexual men, who are used to seeing themselves represented in all sorts of roles throughout media.

When she was very little I heard my cousin ask my aunt if girls could really be professors. Her ignorance on this matter isn't to be entirely explained by the fact that she's internalized the mainstream media image of a professor being a white middle-aged guy, but to say it has NOTHING to do with it is absolute fucking horseshit. Of course it does.

What we see constantly shapes our prejudices and our expectations, not only about others but about ourselves.

Have you seen Nightbreed?
Pushed the absolute limit with animatronics, has some great practical effects, costumes and makeup. A hot mess.
Seen Spider-Man 3? Sandman was probably the most impressive use of CGI that year, yet it was a trainwreck, albeit a somewhat entertaining one.
I feel the same about the prequels, great concepts world building, attempt to push the film making envelope were made, but it didn't come together well enough for them to be good movies, mostly because two key elements were lacking: Competent scripts and a capable actors director.
Sometimes staying safe has better results.

>>
>>65030813
>Le everything is white male's fault

Not really. A part of how the world is today, or had become until very recently is an escalation of how everyone in it perceives it.
The reason white men took control and made the world their playground I think has less to do with us being the evil boogyman, but because it was expected of us by our mothers and wives. It was a deal struck in antiquity: They stayed home in relative comfort and took care of the kids in exchange for you conquering the world so succeeding generations might have a brighter future growing up into conquers themselves. It was in part a happenstance that the lighter pigmented version of homo sapiens sapiens prevailed over other wife driven conquerors.
So when us "evil" white men had nothing else to conquer, our mothers and wives started wanting a slice of the kingdom we built as well. At the same time, the mothers and wives of those who we conquered started pushing harder for their sons to go out and get a slice too.
And by golly, most of us will give them what we have at the drop of a hat, even those of us who complain the loudest about it. Because we all love our mothers, and most of us desire a wife to please.

I never said that, but all the images she sees throughout her life has an affect on her that isn't negligible. This isn't conspiracy theory, It's just psychology and sociology. If we only see certain people in certain roles, then that affects our expectations about people in those roles. If you say this to any educated person, it'll seem like it borders on the trivial, yet to you it's 'retarded'. Whenever I mention this on /tv/ especially, people start acting like the people in Idiocracy.

the revenant is one of leos worst performances and inarritu is possibly the most insufferable director currently working. if this movie was temporally shifted and switched with the beach, but without switching directors, it would be beaten brutally as the overrated derivative pandering piece of shit that it is in 2000, while in 2015-2016 the beach would be considered a masterpiece

The racism and anti-SJW sentiments on 4chan made it harder to have fun here. 4chan's always been shitty, but in that way that made you and others work together to find a way to enjoy yourselves. It was fucking around with other people being stupid assholes for the sake of being stupid assholes with barely any genuine malice intended. Now most of what i see is bad arguments, edginess, pinning the changing quality on reddit, and porn. 4chan is 12, it shouldn't be hitting puberty this hard.

Also Blue Mountain State was a genuinely good show that deserved more viewership despite being one of the most blue collar things ever put on television
